Monadnock 2023 Earth Day Festival: Delmarva and the Ground for Change

Delmarva and the Ground for Change to be feature film at the Monadnock Earth Day Festival.

On behalf of the Monadnock International Film Festival (MONIFF), Monadnock Farm & Community Coalition, and Monadnock Food Co-op, the featured theme for this year's Monadnock Earth Day Film Fest is "climate change and how producers are working to mitigate its effects" - whether its farmers on the Delmarva Peninsula of Delaware or Native American tribes scattered throughout the Southwest. The films Delmarva and the Ground for Change, Seeds of our Children, and Inhabitants dive deeply into the topic. Learn how producers and a business owner implement sustainable practices to mitigate climate change while maintaining or increasing profitability, and how advocates work to support them.

Film Synopsis:

Environmental stewardship of farmers around the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays has made them leaders in practices that protect and promote healthy soils. These very practices also safeguard working lands against extremes posed by climate change. This film follows three different family-owned farming operations on the Delmarva Peninsula who all care about and depend on soil.
